Mom and dad were high in the sky when we arrived today. They obviously had been disturbed from the nest and were eager to get back. A couple of quick pictures of the young eyas revealed a bird rapidly approaching fledging age. Staying only briefly, we watch from afar as both parents returned to the nest.
